Super Summer

Oh my! The summer is gone and the kids start school again in 3 days. We packed in as much fun and sun as we could and are ready to get back to normal. By normal I mean, abnormal. Things seem to be in a constant state of change lately. Between ward changes, family changes, kids growing, and schedule changes we are still waiting for everything to calm down. I know better than to expect that to really happen. Before we know it the holidays will be upon us.

Anyway, I thought I'd share some of my favorite photos from over the summer.

More Crafting Going On

Well since the summer started and the kids have been home all day, I've felt a little imbalanced. So I've decided to allot some time to crafting. Something that helps me relax and feel accomplished.

So here's the starter craft. A beaded watch. It took me about a half hour to put it together. I can't wait to make more to switch around with whatever I'm wearing.

I'll be posting more of the things I make here on my blog so I have a running history of what I'm making.

Happy Crafting!

Learning Old Lessons

It still amazes me how we forget the important things in our lives. Our little family has had to relearn some lessons lately. With all we have going on in our lives it's easy to forget the little things that make an enormous difference.
All I can say is...Prayers are answered, especially when you are doing the things the Lord has asked of you. He knows each and every one of us. He loves us and is there for us when we need him.
Some changes may be in the works for us in the near future and it'll be good for us all. Probably not easy, but good.
I'm grateful to know that, as we move forward, we'll be watched over and blessed.
